Pirelli and WorldSBK Extend Their Contract


The partnership between Dorna WorldSBK Organization and Pirelli is extended for three more years.

Pirelli will continue to be the Official Tyre Supplier for all MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship classes until the 2026 season. Dorna WorldSBK Organization and Pirelli have a successful 20-year partnership where they work together to create high-quality, reliable, and high-performance tyres that are crucial for the safety and success of riders.

“Pirelli has proved time and again to be a perfect match for WorldSBK as our sole Official Tyre Supplier. Not only does our partnership ensure a great level of quality and performance to our teams and riders throughout the season on a wide variety of venues, but they also completely embraced the values and philosophy of the Championship by bringing to the race track the products they offer to motorcyclists. WorldSBK has evolved through numerous eras and phases since we started to work with Pirelli, and the fact that we’ve been building on this mutually beneficial collaboration over the past 20 years is unprecedented. So, it’s with great enthusiasm that we’re looking towards the future of WorldSBK and Pirelli together as the Championship evolves and new challenges arise.” – Gregorio Lavilla, WorldSBK Executive Director for DWO.

Pirelli considers WorldSBK an essential part of its motorcycle strategy as it constantly offers a competitive and challenging environment to improve and innovate its tyres. Pirelli is committed to the Championship and sees it as a significant part of its involvement in motorsports, which is why they extended their partnership.

“This year we are celebrating an important milestone: in fact, it has been 20 years that we have been alongside the FIM Superbike World Championship as sole supplier for all classes. A road, begun in 2004, which represented the first example of a single-tyre formula in the history of top motorsport competitions and which, years later, has proven to be a winning choice, later followed by other championships. Motorsport has historically been an integral part of Pirelli’s DNA and this renewal is in line with our corporate strategy which sees World Superbike as a key platform for the development of our motorcycle tyres, starting with racing and super sports tyres. We are happy to continue this adventure alongside Dorna, the teams and riders until 2026 whilst continuing to offer motorcyclists from all over the world tyres that contain the best of Superbike-derived technology.” – Aldo Nicotera, Senior Vice-President and Head of Moto and Cycling Pirelli.
